APS Conference for Undergraduate Women in Physics at Brown University

Jan 21 – Jan 23, 2022

The APS Conferences for Undergraduate Women in Physics (CUWiP) are three-day regional conferences for undergraduate physics majors.

Please review the COVID disclaimer and institutional guidelines from Brown University and follow guidelines for limited-duration visitors (three days or less).

The goal of APS CUWiP is to help undergraduate women continue in physics by providing them with the opportunity to experience a professional conference, information about graduate school and professions in physics, and access to other women in physics of all ages with whom they can share experiences, advice, and ideas.

The national and local organizing committees of APS CUWiP strive to create a welcoming environment for all, including undergraduate women and gender minorities.

CUWiP Conferences will be held in 13 Locations including Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island.

CUWiP has become incredibly popular. In order to maximize the number of CUWiP participants we can accommodate, we will allocate participants to sites based on travel logistics and site capacity. We will aim to follow the distributions outlined below, but may have to make adjustments.
